    Enabling "Windows Backup" option in the "Change Action Center settings" window

    Hi

    I have Windows 8.1 Update Enterprise 64-bit.

    I noticed that, in the "Change Action Center settings" window, the "Windows Backup" item is disabled. How come? How do I enable it?

    Thanks

    Bye

    From what I understand, with Win 8/8.1 you use File History to back up your files.

    If it isn't turned on then this article may help http://www.7tutorials.com/introducin...a-file-history

    Edit - Have a look at your "Starting Apps" thread.

    I tried to turn on "File History" function but the "Windows Backup" item is always gray and marked. How come?

    Thanks

    If you read the link I've put in your other thread http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...gs-quot-window you need to log in as an administrator for the Startup Apps as they will remain greyed out as well without admin rights, so it seems feasible that the same would apply to the Windows Backup option.
